Little Mountain Curriculum vs. BC Curriculum
Since 2004, Little Mountain has built a strong, holistic classroom environment. Our in-house curriculum brings together Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading and Writing, Speaking, and Listening.
After a thorough assessment, students are placed in small groups of a maximum of six. Their fellow learners will be of a similar age and ability. This enables students to actively take part in their own learning. Students engage with varied, project-based learning tasks. Our students benefit from personalized guidance from their passionate and skilled teachers.
Our holistic model supports academic and leadership skills. These cultivate independence and a passion for life-long learning.
